Operating System Compatibility

Hello, I'm using C++ API to get real-time rate data from router's api. We have used RFA for several years and it's obviouly out of date.

1. Is RTSDK the latest real-time sdk for getting real-time data?

2. Is RFA 8.x officially not recommended now? Should I choose RTSDK rather than RFA8.x for getting real-time data?

3. When I read the "API Compatibility Matrix Version 2023.4, May, 2023" of RFA framework, I find that RFA 8.x or newer only support redhat5.x platform while all newer versions of redhat are not supported. It's quite against common sense that older RFA support these newer version of redhat. So I'm quite confused.

4. Last question is about supported operating systems of both RFA and RTSDK. Have the reuter's developer tested Chinese Operating System like KylinOS, openEuler, UOS? Can I use these Operating Systems to run the above frameworks?

Thank you for reaching out to us.

1. Yes, RTSDKs are the current strategic SDKs to retrieve real-time financial data.

2. To develop new applications, we recommend using RTSDKs instead of RFA.

3. Please refer to the API Compatibility Matrix for the supported compilers and operating systems.

4. We haven't tested RTSDKs on Chinese operating systems. You can use RTSDKs on those operating systems but we will not support RTSDKs on those operating systems. If you find issues while using RTSDKs, we will replicate the issues on the supported compilers and operating systems.
